Is this a Bug?
Hard to say, as you didn't even tell us what encoder you were using (LAME, Vorbis, Nero AAC) or at least provide your log

Please give me exact instructions how to reproduce the problem you have encountered and I will be able to analyze and, if it is a bug, fix it.

(Oh, and it might also be helpful if you tell us how you "measure" the resulting bitrate and conclude that it is wrong)

again for all your work.

A few hiccups I’ve encountered.
It ignores language selected on install, does it install by region ? I ask because I have an English OS with a Spanish keyboard and Spanish region selected, I select English, it then installs in Spanish.
It doesn’t seem to be importing my old settings, ie. I uninstalled the older version selecting, keep settings. installed newer version and it outputs files at the default installation settings. I then reverted back to the 3.6 final build and all my compression/settings were automatically recognized. Im also still experiencing a lot of lag when selecting output, ( am I the only one ?) this is also not present with 3.6 final
Oh yeh , almost forgot , you asked about antivirus, Im using Avira.
Ps what happened to the floating mines when you click about, and the moving cd.

Well, the language you select in the installer is for the install program. It does not (yet) influence the (initial) language of the main program.

The language of the main program should default to your system's language (if we have that language, otherwise English) and can be changed in the language menu.

Making the installer set the initial language would make sense. But unfortunately we have much more main program translations than installer translations...

The configuration is stored separately for each version, as with every version new settings might be introduced, obsolete settings might be removed and/or existing settings might change their meaning. Version 3.xx and version 4.xx use completely different configuration files anyway, as the application has been rewritten from the scratch.

In my experience Avira Antivir has one of the fastest real-time scanners. Also Avira support responds quickly to report of false positives.

These were cookies, not mines. The 'feature' was removed to avoid confusion. But I can add something similar to v4.xx

New experimental snapshot available:

This build includes a workaround for a regression in latest MediaInfo, as described in this post.
Note that LameXP v4.01 (build #418) is not effected by this problem, because it still used a slightly older MediaInfo, which didn't exhibit the problem.
My workaround doesn't entirely fix the problem. There still can be problems if "\n" or "\r" appear inside meta tags...

Oh I only just discovered this thread after thinking wth happened with LameXP over all those months of not hearing about it :P
Good to see you still working on it (althought I can't imagine what else do you possibly need to improve about this already good program).

edit: Where are you getting the alpha LAME version from? The latest update on their web was who knows how many months ago.

And auto-update didn't fetch the update for you? Or did you disable auto-update?

The LAME project does not release any binaries. Only sources. I check out the sources from the CVS repository on their official SourceForge.net web-site and make my own build.

Another great site for getting pre-compiled binaries of various audio encoders/decoders is Rarewares.org. Oh, and LAME v3.99 is in BETA stage now

Well I haven't made any mp3s for like year and a half, so that explains :P

I was checking changelog on http://lame.sourceforge.net/ and the changelog doesn't change much. I lived under the impression it was kind of up to date as it lists betas changes too.

Well, since v3.99 went "beta", the Changelog has been updated:
http://lame.cvs.sourceforge.net/view...?revision=HEAD

For more detailed information you will have to look directly at the CVS repository listing:
http://lame.cvs.sourceforge.net/view...e/?sortby=date

(Note that CVS, in contrast to SVN, only manages histories of individual files rather than a complete project history.
Something like 'cvs2cl.pl' may be used to generate a human-readable changelog from CVS hsitories)

New experimental snapshot available:
Updated MediaInfo to SVN-r3975, which fixes the line-break bug (regression in MediaInfo v0.7.44), and consequently removed the workaround.

New experimental snapshot available:

This version introduces ATSC A/52 (aka "AC-3") encoding support, using Aften v0.0.8+ (Git Head).
Also the Ogg Vorbis encoder has been updated to aoTuV beta 6.03.

I noticed that on transcoding from flac to mp3, with the stable build, a little delay (about 2200 samples) seems to be added to the beginning of each file...
and why the normalization option isn't settable on 0.0dB?

It's due to the ID3 tag (or the Xing header) prepended by LAME, I guess

ID3v2 tags (in contrast to ID3v1) are stored at the beginning of the MP3 file and they are camouflaged as (silent) mp3 frames to retain compatibility with the original mp3 standard.

Decoders aware of ID3v2/Xing will probably discard these frames (maybe by option), while other decoders will decode them happily as silent samples...

(One mp3 frame covers exactly 1152 samples, so from your description it seems you got two extra frames)

One shouldn't normalize up to the maximum possible sample value in order to avoid distortions, especially with respect to Audio-CD players.

See also:
http://lamexp.git.sourceforge.net/gi...=HEAD#434f2578

(To make a long story short: Even if all samples values are at most 0dBFS in the digital domain, the reconstructed analogue signal may still exceed 0dBFS and thus cause distortion)

Fan- freckin'-tastic...

I just generated a few tests, converting 6Ch AAC to 6Ch AC3. All went well and very fast

I'm lovin' it

I don't know if anyone else uses this program for you-tube videos. I drop the mp4 file in and output mp3's without needing to extract the audio 1st.

Great piece of software which works like it should. Thanks!!!

EDIT: I'm not sure if it will work but can you see if you can add .flv support please?

Well, FLV is a container format. It may contain various audio formats, including (but not limited to) the MP3 format.

The MP3 decoder that is used in LameXP, which is mpg123, doesn't support FLV as input. So we would need to extract the MP3 stream from the FLV container first.

However I'm not aware of a suitable tool for that purpose. There is FLV Extract by Moitah, but unfortunately it's a .NET application....

(And currently I don't feel like porting it to plain C/C++ ^^)

New experimental snapshot available:

The Cue Sheet import wizard should now also be able to import tracks from files that are not Wave/PCM.


[UPDATE]

Build #532 improved the precision of the Cue Sheet splitter. The cut points were calculated slightly wrong before.

So please run auto-update, if you intend to test the Cue Sheet import feature!

[/UPDATE]

What "double confirmation" you are referring to? Most info/warning dialogs can be disabled under "Extras" -> "Configuration".

About what you call a "DOS window", please read this section of the FAQ document:
